So glad to have found this wonderful property. Everything about it was perfect for our family of 6 (2 grandparents, 2 young children and us) Garden / pool area immaculately kept & looked after, inside was equally clean & well equipped. Peter & Julie are lovely people who were always on hand when needed for advice or for a chat without being intrusive. Hoping to return next year!
The villa is magically situated in olive groves, and the most intrusive noise is birdsong!! You can see the bay from where you sit on the verandah for breakfast, and the occasional clinkety clonk of a goat's bell. The apartment is comfortably and thoughtfully furnished, and Peter & Julie have managed the feat of being available for questions but give you all the privacy you want otherwise. Beautiful gardens and a real sun trap for sunbathing. About 15 minutes walk either way to Almyrida (good bakery, and the beach) or Plaka (grocery shops, and best restaurants around), although like most of Crete it's pretty hilly - but it does make the views spectacular. And when you've walked up the hill you can enjoy the baklava with a clear conscience! Totally recommend this place.
Have recently had the pleasure of staying at Villa Mistika. The property is immaculate, the pool area and gardens are beautiful with lovely views to the sea. The village is pretty with some excellent tavernas and a safe sandy beach all within walking distance of the villa. Julie and Peter who own the property are a delightful couple very helpful. I will certainly be returning.
